"Upgrading to Microsoft Office 2007" is a short 125 page book that gets you up to speed on where Microsoft moved the features. Or maybe it's 62 pages - Course Technology uses the same format as Murach does where one side of the page is the text and the other is the pictures.

The book is intended for experienced Office 2003 users and assumes you are familiar with the concepts already. Parts of it moved a bit slowly for an experienced user though. It covers Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.

The book does cover the new features in Office 2007 well. For the most part, it covers the new locations of common features well. There were a few times I couldn't find a feature with the instructions and the picture didn't cover it. There were also a few times the book referred to locations that were not the same on my screen resolution (page numbers in the sample files and column numbers on the ribbon.) The appendix mapping 2003 menu options to the ribbon was excellent.

While the book was good, I think you can get a lot of the material from free training such as Microsoft's interactive menu map. If you favor books, the book was fine and covers what you would expect it to.
